OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Andre Ward remained unbeaten and stayed
on course for a 168-pound title shot this year with the biggest victory of his pro career, a unanimous decision over Colombia's Edison Miranda on Saturday night.

Ward (19-0, 12 KOs), the 2004 U.S. Olympic gold medalist, showed resilience in fighting 11½ rounds with a cut over his left eye caused by a head-butt from the free-swinging Miranda (32-4). Although Ward couldn't land a knockout, he clearly demonstrated better skill and discipline while thriving in the late rounds of just the second 12-round fight of his career.

Fighting at Oracle Arena in his hometown for the first time as a pro, Ward heard his name chanted and received a standing ovation afterward.
